Get acquainted with the essential sights of the world’s southernmost capital city aboard a comfortable motor coach. From the pier, you’ll drive along charming Oriental Bay to Mt Victoria for sweeping views encompassing the city and harbor. Nearby is a memorial to Admiral Byrd—the famous Antarctic explorer. Next, drive along Lambton Quay at the center of Wellington’s main business and shopping district. Climb aboard the red cable car for a ride up to Kelburn, where you will re-join your coach for a short drive to the Botanic Gardens. You will have time to walk through the begonia house and visit the Lady Norwood Rose Gardens. The latter are laid out in a formal design with more than 500 varieties of roses. Close by, you will see the Parliament buildings, which are dominated by the unique architecture of the Beehive. You’ll also see one of the largest wooden structures in the world—the Government Building. At Old St Paul’s Church you will see one of New Zealand’s finest examples of colonial Gothic architecture. Designed by Reverend Frederick Thatcher, it was completed in 1866 and is built entirely of native woods.
